“New Brunswick Day is the occasion to celebrate our rich cultural heritage, our province’s natural beauty and the people who call our great province home,” said Tourism, Heritage and Culture Minister John Ames. “I encourage all New Brunswickers to get outside on this day and to spend time with family and friends.”
The following sites will be offering free gate admission:
- Parlee Beach;
- Mount Carleton;
- Murray Beach;
- De la République;
- Herring Cove;
- New River Beach; and
- Hopewell Rocks.
The Get Outside! NB program was designed to connect youth and families to nature through the province’s parks and natural areas. It is a collaboration between departments of the provincial and federal governments and non-governmental organizations.
“As New Brunswickers, we have much to be proud of,” said Ames. “Our provincial parks are second to none. I encourage residents and visitors to our province to take advantage of this opportunity to visit one of the beautiful natural areas that are in our own backyard.”
